Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! With so many loved ones to reach out to next month, I wanted to hurry up and get started on our homemade Valentine’s cards. We just needed a couple items to make these 2 cute card designs for friends and family. Here’s how you can make your own!
Supply List: construction paper, white paper, markers/permanent markers, scissors, glue/glue stick, and a stamp pad. You can always add glitter or more to your list to fit your style.
Start off with a clean white sheet of paper and use your kiddos fingers and a stamp pad make your first stamp to create a body for the butterfly. Then on each side put 2 fingerprints to represent the wings.
Next, using a pen or a black permanent marker, add the details such as a smiley face to the butterfly. Add some flutters and more to your design. I also drew a heart around it so that I could cut it out in the shape of a heart.
Add in the details to your bee and you have your base!
Now cut out both hearts and grab some construction paper. Fold the construction paper to the size of your desired card and then with a little glue stick on the heart to your paper. Pick a clever message such as Bee Mine or You Give Me Butterflies to write on your card. Ta-da! A Handmade Valentines Day Card from your kiddo.
Happy Valentine’s Day, San Antonio!
